Seven Floors High is based around a true story of life inside Iaxis, a "New Age" Internet company during the boom of 2000. This riveting and fast paced novel provides a vivid and humorous account of life inside Iaxis during this extravagant "dot.com" period. More
Iaxis was located in London's ITN Building and its story provides a very timely insight in to corporate greed and commercial excess. Iaxis was born out of Kevin Maxwell's Telemonde company in January 1999 and following the rise of "dot.com" shares, Iaxis was valued at $1 Billion in March 2000. Written with style and humour, the story is a personal account of one individual who saw the "paper tiger" from the inside.
A Non-Fiction "Secret Narrator" within the text also provides the reader with a detailed insight into both the classified world of intelligence gathering operations and the politics of oil as the life blood of the global economy. How much do we really know about the NSA's ECHELON system? What was the role of the U.S. Department of Defense in the development of the Internet? How did America's National Security Directive 26 change US foreign policy towards Iraq in 1990? And how does this new information all tie-in with a story set in a London based start-up Telecoms/Internet company called Iaxis?
